Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

I have a video/audio transcoder vm in my mind for some time, the base should boot in 2 seconds and be able to run ffmpeg and friends (and some basic wm, so the files can be drag and droped from the host os), any usefull hints will be noted.
edit: this is probably in the wrong thread...

Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

I love Debian but I think they need better DEs.

Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

Gnome Shell is stuck on 3.4 and KDE was buggy last time I checked (6 weeks ago).

Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

^It is subjective, yes. By the way, I never use the "p" word as I believe it is subjectivity masquerading as objectivity.

It was just a thought that I prefer LMDE's and CrunchBang's choices for Debian. It isn't the age; MATE is perhaps my favorite right now.

However, I just installed Debian Sid with Gnome Shell 3.4 and it's absolutely fine.

Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

The main difference?
corenominal . . .  of course!
and  . . .  oh yes, the forums are great also.


The trouble with having an open mind . . . .
  . . . . . . is people come and put things in it.

#! is polished as in looks nice, works great, no rough edges.  That does not mean it is the prettiest / most eye candy.

Re: Crunchbang vs Debian w/ OpenBox

I guess there aren`t any significant differences between the two. Non-free is easy enough to implement with Debian. Here are a few very good scripts, like cb-welcome and cb-exit, but those can be "stolen" and used on Debian. The only thing that`s really uniqe is the community, but the community is also so friendly that you still will have it in your back  if you desert CB and goes to Debian.

So what it boils down to, is that it is a h...of a lot cooler to be a Crunchbanger. #! is very well put together and neatly configured, but it shouldn`t be to difficult to replicate this on Debian itself. But why do that, when someones already done it for you?

Take Peppermint Three for example. It`s a ubuntu/mint-based lxde-openbox distro. It was no problem to make it look and feel exactly like Crunchbang, even with the Ubuntu/mint-base, so I guess that pretty much any distro can be made into a good copy of any other distro. But the only reason to do it, is the learning experience.
